Please try to run Amarok as root. To do so, please press Alt-F2 and insert "gksudo amarok" and press "Run". If MP3 works now, please close Amarok, press Alt-F2 again, insert "ln -s /usr/lib/xine/plugins/ ~/.xine/plugins " and press "Run" again. After that Amarok should be able to play MP3.

well thanks for your advices but still the problem remains, the amarok keeps telling me that the support for mp3 format was installed and i ve to restart amarok but no matter what i do it keeps on the same
